Oprah denies heading to Tahrir Square

Oprah Winfrey has responded to the recent news stories published by several newspapers of her intention to make a trip to Tahrir Square in central Cairo.

Her response on Twitter: "In bed with flu since Oscar show. Hearing reports that I'm taking show to Cairo. NOT TRUE. Have no plans to do so."

Several newspapers in Egypt and the Middle East had reported the popular television personality would be making an appearance in Cairo to boost tourism in the country.

A representative from Winfrey's Harpo Studios told the media: "Reports about The Oprah Winfrey Show taping a future episode in Egypt are untrue. There are no plans for the show to broadcast from an international location before the programme's finale in May."

Tahrir Square was the centre of protests in Cairo to oust the now departed President Hosni Mubarak.
